Best Overall: LG 65” 4K HDR Smart UHD TV

LG 65


It's hard to walk away from LG’s 65-inch AI ThinQ-enabled 4K TV unimpressed. The television’s name might be an absolute mouthful, but it should be the first model you consider at Walmart. Everything from the brushed metal frame to the barely-there stand make it feel ultra-premium. Displaying beautiful lifelike picture in 4K — with support for a variety of HDR content including HDR10 and HLG, as well — the screen is easily viewed from all angles. The 65-inch display's beauty is made possible by LG’s Nano Cell technology; this tech incorporates deeper blacks and a larger color gamut to provide a hyper-realistic picture. 

Though the LG 65” 4K HDR Smart UHD TV could sell itself on picture alone, rest assured that every other component is just as up to snuff. With built-in LG AI (artificial intelligence), the TV becomes the center of your smart home. Grab the LG Magic Remote to control smart lights, check the weather, view family photos, and more. Alongside the AI is webOS which is compatible with programs like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Sling, and more for streaming movies, shows, and music. 

Best Budget: Sceptre 55” 4K Ultra HD LED TV

Sceptre 55


As Walmart’s best-selling TV brand, it’s not surprising the Sceptre 55-inch 4K Ultra HD LED TV edges out other budget picks to lead the pack. Nearly half the price of competing models, the Sceptre features 4K picture quality with over 8 million pixels. The crisp display belies its budget pricing with deep blacks and vibrant colors that enhance all of your favorite movie and TV shows. That the TV can upscale 1080p content to near 4K quality is just another added bonus often not found in this price range. While it lacks a smart TV system for content streaming platforms like Netflix or Hulu, there are four HDMI 2.0 ports so you can rig up external hardware.

Connecting a video game system or Blu-ray player is as easy plugging in a cord. Once set up, you can flip the input switch on the included remote and find your additional hardware. Adding even more value is a Mobile High-Definition Link — or MHL. This special USB port expands functionality by allowing users to mirror a compatible smartphone, tablet, or other portable devices on the Sceptre’s screen. Show pictures, movies, or apps right on the big screen with just a single plug.

Best for Streaming: LG 65” 4K Super UHD TV

LG 65” 4K Super UHD TV


If you’re looking to stream a bunch of online content on an internet-enabled TV, your best Walmart choice is the LG 65” 4K Super UHD TV with AI ThinQ technology. Right away LG differentiates itself with outstanding picture quality; boosted by the performance of an a7 intelligent processor, this model can push out real-world color experiences. Everything from HDR to Nano Cell allows the LG to provide a deep color gamut. Nano Cell is so natural that it creates an image 64 times more detailed than standard TV formatting, in fact, and the result is bluer skies, greener grass, and deeper blacks.

Along with outstanding picture quality, the TV has excellent features. The inclusion of Dolby Atmos creates one of the most detailed sound experiences available without the addition of external speakers. The audio mimics surround sound for exceptionally crisp detail and gamers can also take advantage of the audio and picture with ultra-fast HDR gaming in 4K. Navigating all your streaming services is made easy by LG’s much-loved Magic Remote. The remote is compatible with smart home devices and you can use Google Assistant to controlling your television with ease.

What to Look for in a TV at Walmart

Size - When determining what size TV you should buy, first survey the size of the room. How far is the seating away from the TV? Will it be mounted or sit on a media stand? These are all factors that play into your selection. Generally, larger TVs will be pricier, but most models come in a slew of sizes so you won’t have to make sacrifices on features.

Picture quality - The primary factor in delivering optimum picture quality is the resolution. If you want the best resolution out there, look for 4K (also referred to as Ultra HD), which equals a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. That’s roughly 4x the number of pixels in a Full HD screen. With so many more pixels crammed into the screen, your pixel density is higher, which means you see a much clearer picture with incredible detail. 

Smart capabilities - Smart TVs are almost the standard these days as streaming TV shows and movies is now the norm. Brands usually have their own proprietary interface, so play around with different ones if you can, taking note of usability. A good setup will save you valuable minutes when navigating to your favorite shows.
